You can only use 10w40 if it is listed in your owners manual as an acceptable weight of oil for the engine.

Is 10W40 a good oil for a Dodge Dakota V6 engine?

It's probably not bad in warmer climates (say above freezing), and maybe even beneficial in southern USA summers, but ultimately depends on the operating environment. If you live in a particularly cold climate, 10W40 definitely wouldn't be the best choice in the winter. Many newer Dakota engines call for 5W30 across the board, but check with your local Dodge dealer for the best choice for your operating environment.

What type of oil does a 1991 Geo Metro need?

Whatever brand you prefer. Just make sure it's a good brand 5w-30 weight. Here is more input: * 5W30 oil in your choice of brands will work just fine. * Regular 5w30 in cold climate. Use synthetic oil. Works wonders. * 10w40 or 10w30, Chilton book warns against using synthetic oil saying it causes leakage in the motor. It recommends 10w30 as an all around oil.
